Always felt their stores are a little dingy and seedy compared to say Virgin Megastore. Must be all the pink neon lights and black plastics :). Their prices are also some of the highest around, don't pay any attention to their sale offers, and 2 for 3 offers etc. You can usually buys these dvd's separately at other stores for much less. Take Amazon for example online, I am sure they will beat HMV for price for any item whatsoever. Don't take my word for it compare them yourselves. On a more positive note I have to say when visiting their high street stores they do have a large selection. At the Derby branch they have many more CD's and dvd's than the Virgin Megastore across the pavement. And they also let you listen to a CD because purchasing it. The vinyl selection is also good. If I can't find a CD or dvd elsewhere I will always give HMV a try, but I know I am paying a premium for their TV advertising, prime location and fancy stores. Online I can't think it makes any sense purchasing from them, you are bound to find stuff lower at Amazon, Play or Loaded 24/7. And in my experience they guys have a great delivery service with timing I am sure HMV cannot beat. That sound HMV are a reliable brand if a little pricey.
